Home Is Where the Heart Is


This is what my dog, Heart, looked like when I came home. I couldn’t even recognise him.

Anyway, I’M HOME!

I reached Alor Setar at around 1 PM yesterday and to be honest, everything here seemed foreign at first glance: the lack of traffic, the slightly less developed roads, the absence of towering buildings and even my home. But after having lived here for 11 years, I managed to slip back into my normal routine quite easily and frankly, I am glad to be home.

I didn’t get the chance to blog about my return yesterday because yesterday was a day of productiveness. As soon as I got home, I started unpacking everything and then proceeded to clean my room so now it’s inhabitable. I don’t even remember what time I went to sleep last night. That’s how productive I was.

I am almost done with Christmas gift wrappings and that’s pretty much what I’m looking forward to at the moment: Christmas.

Despite the gladness and relief, yes, I still do miss my Starstruck! buddies. But I’m veering more towards “until the time we meet again” instead of lurking at “our time here is over, we might never see each other again” so yes, that’s been helpful, at least.

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

PS. I didn’t forget about the YNN Camp page. It’s still under construction until I stop procrastinating enough to finish it.
